The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Man som hatar kvinnor) (2009)

Rated R 148 min. 2010



Niels Arden Oplev's effectively narrated tale can be characterized as a meeting of Se7en, Ten Little Indians, Blow-Up and Celebration. Adapted from the late Stieg Larsson's wildly popular novel about the corrupt nexus of recidivist Nazi sympathizers and wicked capitalists, this film tells the story of a disgraced, rumpled, muckraking journalist (hello!) named Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and a pierced, tattooed, goth chick named Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) who team up to investigate the "40-year-old murder of a 16-year-old," as the latter nicely puts it. Despite some unusual lead characters, what we get is merely a passable—if gratuitously violent—serial killer film, complete with spooky Bible verses and a little twist at the end.
